Ceylin Gökalp Clarinet

My name is Ceylin Gökalp. I was born on November 19, 2004 in Ankara, Turkey. 

I started music under the direction of Hacettepe Violin Concertmaster, Professor Cengiz Özkök. In 2014, I passed the talent exam for the Bilkent University Ahmet Adnan Saygun Music and Ballet Secondary School Clarinet major art branch and was accepted as a scholarship. 

I attended master classes of Prof. Michel Lethiec, Nicholas Cox, Philippe Cuper and Fabrizzio Meloni. In 2019, I attended the master class of Alain Damiens at the Urla Music Academy (UMA) and gave a solo recital. I gave concerts by participating in the 1st Bursa International Music Festival and Istanbul Woodwind Festival. 

When I was 14 years old, I won second prize 

in the 14-16 age category at the 4th Paris International Music Competition held in Paris in April 2019. 

These are the orchestras I am a member of: 

Bilkent Youth Symphony Orchestra, Ankara Youth Symphony Orchestra, Doğuş Çocuk Symphony Orchestra, Turkey Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, Agora Wind Ensemble and the Agora Youth Symphony Orchestra. I am still continuing my education at Bilkent University Music Preparatory High School with Leonid Volkov.
